“The house isn’t under construction—kids just live here”

“The house isn’t under construction—kids just live here” is a popular house sign. “The house isn’t under construction…kids just live here” has been cited in print since at least 2007.

Under Construction
I was at one of my clients homes yesterday and she has a wooden plaque with the cutest saying in vinyl on it. I will be calling my friend Tiffany Bingham with Simple Inspirations Vinyl asap to have one made up for myself. The plaque read…..“No, this house isn’t under construction. Children live here!”
